Group for the BFPs
Hi, girls! I just wanted to create a group for all the BFPs we have gotten. There have been so many lately and i have gotten to know a lot of you and i don't want to go to another forum. I feel bad talking on other groups about my bfp when others are still trying. So I figured we could talk about things in here too! I am 6w5d today. I have a 2yr old dd and am 39 yrs old. Just starting to get a few symptoms and my eye is twitching out of control. Hope to hear from my other bfp friends!

Calvingirl my little one was transverse for a really long time too, they started to go head down around 34 weeks but still kept popping sideways every now and again. I haven't had them do it for probably a week now so hopefully he/she has decided head down is the place to be....I hope you can compromise with the doctors at a date they suits you both and is obviously best for baby :)
Dragonfly23 it really sounds like your suffering baby blues....DO NOT beat yourself up about breast feeding...fed is best...and the most important thing for a happy baby is to have a happy mummy. I couldn't breast feed my daughter she never ever latched on at all. I gave myself such a hard time, so much lost time worrying about it. My son had the perfect latch, but I soon realised breast feeding wasn't for me.....at all, I'm too much of an active person I can walk into town with a baby in a pram holding a bottle, or in the school playground, but I wouldn't feel comfortable breast feeding like that so I knew it was time to put him in a bottle too...and it was the best thing I did. This time around I'll breast feed a few times for the colostrum but I won't be breastfeeding I don't think. Also about your husband...he is probably feeling as lost as you are. He is a man and he may not quite realise the same if the baby has pooped or how to clean a belly button...some men just aren't as maternal as mummies, he could be sat wondering why your not asking him to help as he doesn't know what's best to do or how to help. I do feel your annoyance though...I hate having to ask my husband for help, with our older kids....he's a very helpful guy most of the time.. but I do get cross if he doesnt do something naturally that so obviously needs doing lol, he says sometimes he just doesn't seem things the way I do xxx

Lakarmw. Thank you for your kind words. My daughter wouldn't latch either and with my DS, I figured I would go as far as tge colostrum as well as I like to do things. I think I may just breast feed and supplment to just get a break. In all honesty, I miss being pregant and feeling all those kicks, pokes and hiccups.

I'm sorry your struggling a bit @dragonfly23. But i think you really should have a sit down, come to jesus talk with your H. you have every right to directly ask for help and support during this time. and really whatever else you may need. I hate to generalize the whole male species, but we as women are just different in how we think and operate. and men dont take queues the same way we do. Plus what's common sense to one person often times isnt common sense to someone else. Be direct and let him know you're struglling and would like his support, help or just a shoulder to lean on during this time. Of course his hands are full, but so are yours. this is the time when you should be a team. but you cant really blame him for not supporting or helping if you havent explicitly told him what you need.
hang in there mama. you really are doing the best you can and for that you deserve and award!

Hope everyone had a happy halloween too! How is everyone doing? I'm nearly 32 wks - for those of you past that, did you get really crampy or should I keep an eye on it? I'm having braxton hicks contractions about 1-2 an hour, nothing alarming, but the menstrual-type cramps inbetween suck. No unusual discharge so I don't think I"m dialating early or anything... My growth scan is next week on Wednesday so I'll be really excited to see how she's doing then.

Great pregnancy announcement beaut1ful38...very in keeping with the day
Good luck with your growth scan Calvingirl I hope it all does well. I had lots of braxton hicks all the time with my second....very very annoying.
38 weeks tomorrow for me, I had a crappy week last week with head aches...probably because my children were off school for a week started feeling better this weekend though, and ok again today, managed the 3 mile round trip to school and home this morning...I do drive but I'm trying to keep as active as I can. I'm so ready to Meet our little one now xxx

Calvingirl, yes, the bh are real! They are annoying and i didn't have them as much with my daughter. They are in my back too.
Lakarmw, no, you don't seem to be dropping yet. Hopefully very soon! Ik how it is being ready and wanting to meet the baby.
Atm, i am 35+1wks. Have to go to the dr 2xs a week now for stress tests. Dr did mention induction at 39 wks. Idk though. Its up to me. If they will do it on nov 29, i probably will. Babys head is measuring very small in the 5% and 2wks behind. They arent too alarmed because my dds was small, just not that small. Her leg bones are 2wks ahead, arm bone right on. Her weight was ahead at 5lbs 8oz last week. I was 34wks then. She has a headful of hair with extremely long strands the tech said. Glad heartburn is a wives tale. The tech said the heart rate being slower for boys is a wives tale as well. Im starting to get tired st work finally and now they are scheduling my 8hr shifts. I begged for them before and never got them until the last month. Go figure. Im scheduled 8hrs all the way up until birth day. On the schedule 8hrs on due date. Lol.

Aww I love all these beautiful baby bumps!! You ladies look great! And @beautiful that pregnancy announcement is too dang cute! I haven't gotten to announce anything yet as I'm only 11weeks on weds and our first ultrasound is on 11-13. But the past 2 days I've had bad cramping and yesterday I had bright red blood a few times so hopefully everything is alright in there. If this bean doesn't stick then we are done and wont be trying any more. Anyone experience some bright red bleeding in the first trimester and have a healthy little one still?

RooRoo, i have. With my 1st, i bled in the 1st trimester some and went to the er. They said i was having a miscarriage. I stressed and she is now going on 3. Hopefully everything is all right in there and you will be in my prayers. Have you called your ob? Maybe they can get you in earlier to check your bean. Take it easy. I would say dont stress but that is hard to do. Was it a lot of blood?

Kelliria sorry to hear your having to go for stress tests must not be too much fun, but as long as baby is ok that's all that matters! Sounds like your baby is growing just fine at her own speed. My little brothers (hes 4) head is and always has been 95th percentile...and hes only on the 25th. Hes a clever bright, happy little guy...just has a bigger than average head bless him....everyone is different and unique. Was your other daughter born with lots of hair too? Both my children have been so far....it will be strange if this one has little or no hair lol...I can only imagine a baby with lots again. Hehe I still have no clues if we are team pink or team blue...and we are a bit stuck with names too xxx
